Between Ben and Jen, Gavin and Gwen, and Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy, celebrity couples are giving hopeless romantics everywhere doubts as to whether their fairytale marriages were really matches made in Heaven. While these unions ended, amicably or not, there's still reason to believe in Hollywood love!

These five celebrity couples have each had their rough patches, but have managed to persevere and stick together:

Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman

Married: 1982
Children together: 3

As probably one of my favorite celebrity and comedic couples, I was devastated to hear that Danny DeVito and Rhea Pearlman were separated in 2012 after being married for 30 years and together a grand total of 40. But my faith in true love was restored when their separation was called off in 2013.

Snoop Dogg and Shante Taylor

The high school sweethearts were separated in 2004, but they reconciled their differences and by 2008 the pair renewed their wedding vows.

Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne

In the crazy rock and roll lifestyle of Ozzy Osbourne, the one constant in his life has been his wife of over 30 years, Sharon. Although it's no secret that the pair has had a tumultuous relationship, largely due to issues involving substance abuse, the two have been able to make it through just about anything that's been thrown their way!

Denzel and Pauletta Washington

Married: 1983
Children together: 4

In 2006 the rumor mill was churning out the news that the longtime married couple Denzel and Pauletta were going to split. Luckily, it seems like all is well in their household as the two bounced back from whatever relationship woes may (or may not) have been plaguing them.

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith

Married: 1997
Children together: 2

In their 18 years together, Will and Jada's relationship has been riddled with divorce rumors. When they started running rampant again on the Internet, likely in the midst of all the other recent celebrity divorces, Will Smith was quick to shoot them down on his Facebook page. He told his fans, bluntly and without hesitation, that he and Jada are 100% not getting a divorce:

Jada then confirmed that Will spoke the truth, posting a short but clear statement:

Every marriage has its ups and downs. Sometimes, couples that were completely in love and a perfect match at one time, simply aren't right anymore. People, even celebrities, change with time and their marriages dissolved in the process. But for some other lucky couples, when it's right, it's right.

But if these five long-standing couples have taught us anything, it's that true love does exist, it might just take a lot of effort.
